4:20 pm
not getting anywhere near us. there's no way that it could come up the coast. here's what we do expect tomorrow. the best chance of any of those isolated showers as you saw is in the lehigh valley and some of the p.a. suburbs. so devon, lansdale have a decent chance. reading and allentown have the best chances with temperatures into the 80s tomorrow afternoon. and it's also in the 80s at the jersey shore because of a strong land breeze out of the west. 86 degrees in atlantic city. i'll be back with the ten-day forecast and see what, for example, the next weekend's going to be like in a few minutes. >> already looking forward to that, glenn, thank you so much. turns out a new culprit has emerged in the war on childhood obesity. >> still ahead, why doctors say celebrities are helping teams pack on the pounds. plus, calling all canines, the competition bringing police dogs from all over the country here to philadelphia. and straight ahead the message in a the bottle that's
